    do i need to stay in development mode?

    thank you. instructions worked like a charm.

    i sideloaded 5 apps.

    my question is will i have to re-sideload them every 10 days?

    also, do i need to keep my playbook in development mode for them to work, or is that just to add them to the playbook? what happens if after i load them i turn off development mode?

    EDIT:

    i sideloaded new york times and wall street journal and they are both terrible. choppy, don't download stories half the time, when they do very slow.

    and i found skype, but it won't let me call other skype accounts, i can only chat with them. i don't seem to have a problem calling landlines though.

    is this typical of sideloaded apps? so far they are all lousy.

    The answer to your first question is no. The quality of the apps depends on the version converted. Skype is pretty much a no go the only thing that works is the chat portion. The NY York times app actually works pretty well. Did you download it from our list?

    sideloaded apps

    thanks ice. do you know if i can turn off development mode once my apps are sideloaded, or should i leave it on for the sideloaded apps to work properly?

    i did take NYT from your list. i shut my playbook down and started it up again, and it seemed to work OK.

    WSJ is still rubbish.

    and what a shame about skype - not much point it all it has is chat. hopefully the full one comes soon.

    thanks.

    Yes you can turn it off in fact I recommend that you do. Skype is something that everyone wanted almost a year ago when the PlayBook first came out. They are supposedly working on an app. I will take a look at the WSJ and see if there is a newer version Ill convert it and add it to the list.

    I'm having a issue, ever since I enabled developer mode now I need to enter my password when my PlayBook is left alone for awhile. Anyway to not have to do this, or am I stuck entering my password until dev mode expires?

    If you are done sideloading, you can turn Developer mode off and then turn the password off as well. You can find both in the "security" section of the settings menu.

    Yes, as downforce mentioned you can turn off both in the security section.
